Email reveals Cecile René Galiber, wife of former U.S. Virgin Islands Governor John Percy de Jongh Jr., discussing a campaign donation to Kenneth Mapp with her then-employer, Jeffrey Epstein.

Recently uncovered communications indicate that Cecile René Galiber, the wife of former U.S. Virgin Islands Governor John Percy de Jongh Jr., reached out to her then-employer, Jeffrey Epstein, concerning a campaign contribution to Kenneth Mapp’s gubernatorial campaign, Your Content has learned.

CrimeSpace reports that the communication seems to have been an attempt to avert negative press directed at her husband.

The email, which is dated November 10, 2014, reveals Cecile de Jongh’s apprehension about potential adverse political ads against her spouse.

In the email to Epstein, Cecile de Jongh wrote, “The Mapp campaign is going to take the money that you gave to attack John,” the email reads. “[We]”Celestino, Seb and others are against this. Can we stop payment on the check to send a message?”

The de Jongh family has been caught up in a series of accusations concerning Jeffrey Epstein’s illicit actions, as documented by The Washington Post.

JPMorgan Chase claims that Cecile de Jongh was a critical figure in Epstein’s network, serving as a “principal channel for distributing funds and wielding influence within the US Virgin Islands government.”

The court filing by JPMorgan Chase further alleged a reciprocal relationship between Epstein and senior officials in the U.S. Virgin Islands, spanning over two decades. Epstein reportedly offered financial support, counsel, influence, and favors, in exchange for protection and privileges from the authorities.

These allegations against Cecile de Jongh surfaced during JPMorgan Chase’s defense in a civil lawsuit filed by the U.S. Virgin Islands. The suit sought to hold JPMorgan Chase accountable for its alleged involvement in aiding Epstein’s trafficking operations.

In a counter to these accusations, JPMorgan Chase characterized them as an effort to divert attention from the bank. A representative for the attorney general of the Virgin Islands underlined the bank’s obligation to report evidence of Epstein’s trafficking activities and denounced its inaction.

Cecile de Jongh has not made any public statements regarding the recently revealed email or the accusations leveled by JPMorgan Chase.

This new evidence intensifies inquiries into the relations between Jeffrey Epstein, the de Jongh family, and the alleged financial and influential transactions within the government of the U.S. Virgin Islands.

On June 12, JPMorgan Chase consented to a settlement of around $290 million to resolve a class-action lawsuit. The settlement addresses a substantial part of the legal dispute concerning the bank’s affiliation with Epstein.

The bank had been accused of dismissing internal alerts and turning a blind eye to warning signs regarding Epstein due to his value as a client.

Epstein had been a client of JPMorgan Chase from 1998 to 2013, maintaining ties with the bank despite his arrest in 2006 for prostitution-related charges and a subsequent guilty plea in 2008.

The settlement aims to resolve claims by over 100 victims, spearheaded by an anonymous former ballet dancer known as Jane Doe 1, who allege abuse by Epstein during their youth and teenage years, according to Reuters.

Following JPMorgan Chase’s settlement, Deutsche Bank agreed to a $75 million settlement in a comparable lawsuit by Epstein’s victims, spotlighting the role financial institutions can play in detecting and obstructing sex trafficking.

David Boies, an attorney for Epstein’s victims, confirmed the $290 million settlement. JPMorgan Chase did not acknowledge any wrongdoing as part of the agreement.

The settlement is still pending approval by U.S. District Judge Jed Rakoff in Manhattan.
